Tiffany Haddish, 41, reveals surrogacy is not for her because she already sold her eggs at 21 when she was 'really hard up with money' and is not interested in more injections

Tiffany Haddish wants to start a family.

But on Monday the Bad Trip star shared she is not interested in having a surrogate mother carry her baby for her.

That is because she already 'gave up a bunch of eggs' for money when she was younger, she told E! DailyPop. 'I don't wanna pay nobody to carry my baby neither, because then I have to go through a process of getting myself injections and all that stuff,' said Haddish who dates Common.

'I already gave up … here comes something everybody don't know … when I was 21, I was really hard up with money and I gave up a bunch of eggs.'

Her breakthrough did not come until  Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes? in 2006.

Tiffany also said she is taking parenting classes to prepare her for adopting a child.

The 41-year-old actress – who is currently in a relationship with Common – has revealed she plans on starting the process of adopting in the near future, and is already attending classes to help her learn the fundamentals of parenting.

'I'm taking parenting classes now so I can adopt. I'm looking at [ages] five and up, really like seven. I want them to be able to use the restroom on their own and talk. I want them to know that I put in the work and I wanted them,' said the beauty.

Tiffany admitted it would be a miracle if she gets pregnant and has a biological child, because she has 'taken the precautions' to make sure that doesn't happen.

When asked about the possibility of getting pregnant herself, she added: 'Let me tell you, if I get pregnant that is all God tearing down all walls, all barriers. 

'I have definitely taken the precautions to protect me. If that s*** happens, I'm going to hire some help, and I'm definitely going.'

Tiffany previously spoke about growing up in foster care herself in Los Angeles, and admitted she found it difficult being sent to stay with 'strangers'.

She was in foster care from 12 to 14. After that she lived with her grandmother. 

She said: 'It was the worst feeling in the world. You're dropped in these strangers' houses, you don't know these people, these people don't know you, you don't know if they're gonna hurt you, if they're gonna be kind, you don't have a clue what's going on ...

'I remember when I got my first suitcase, I felt like I was a traveller, like I had a purpose, like I'm a person, like I'm not garbage, I got this - it's mine, and my things are in here, and wherever I go I can take this with me and I'm going somewhere.'

And Tiffany remembered 'being in the system' for years.

She added: 'I remember being in the system until I wasn't worth anything [in state funding]. When I talk to some of my comedy buddies now they'll say, 'Tiffany, you ain't never been afraid.' And I'm thinking to myself, 'Well, you obviously never knew me.''
